And yes, that means the Tesla Roadster is even quickest in acceleration than the Bugatti Chiron. The roadster was revealed in a climatic way as the launch event for Tesla Semi was closing of.

Comparing Roadster to the Bugatti Chiron, the latter does 0 to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds and tops the speed chart at 261 mph.
The new roadster may seem it has a small interior space, however it can carry four passengers easily. Nevertheless, Elon himself stated that it wouldn’t be a good idea to try and fit a big person at the back. The top glass roof can be removed and slide on to the trunk for an open-top experience.

However, if we compare it to other vehicles on its performance levels, the Tesla roadster is the cheapest electric sports car you can buy.
